Students interested in pursuing a career in government, business, communications, or the law can add a breadth of perspective through the political science minor.

The political science minor consists of five courses (20 credits total) that may span the sub-disciplines of American politics, international relations, comparative politics, political philosophy, and political sociology. Any courses with the political science (POLT) or politics and society (PS) course designations may be used toward the minor. No more than two courses may be taken at the 400 level.

The minimum grade requirement is C- per course. Any grade lower than a C- will not count toward the minor. Students wishing to use transfer credits from abroad or other universities should meet with the political science minor supervisor, Melinda Negron-Gonzales, to determine eligibility toward the minor.
